indeed sir...
Rosemary would have been great, played LOUD, live and acoustic with extra texture fx on Jerry's vocal...

While Rosemary was understated the one time Garcia played it live, thanks for that link, sun... I just replayed the show and enjoyed Saint Stephen, Eleven and especially New Potato Caboose:


and What's Become Of The Baby, btw, was played karaoke style in a live/tape mix on one strange eve at the Avalon...

Jerry isn't exactly getting a lot of support on the only live Rosemary...what a shame

once read that Jerry had this idea for the entire Grateful Dead to sound like it was coming out of one voice when they recorded What's Become of the Baby, but couldn't figure out how to do it at the time...an interesting album that he admitted wasn't entirely conducive to live performance..."even China Cat is marginal"...but then Jer was always a modest soul about his accomplishments, gotta love him for it

for sure 'mission'! oh yes...

i have always loved 'if i had the world to give'...i think that one, had they allowed it to develop, could have been something really special. along the lines of SOTM...

'it takes alot to laugh, it takes a train to cry'...iknow this came back in the '90s, but the one time previous the band played it (RFK '73, obviously JGB played it oftenish)), i think it may have been one of jerry's best moments. they should have kept it up through their more capable years. i was at the break out in '91(?)and it was really only okay...

i also think it is a shame that they quit esau (and passenger)...i only saw that a couple of times.
